Limelight: Saturday night is an installation and video work by artists Sans façon.
The installation is touring internationally in 2010-2011. To date it has been installed in 6 cities (Glasgow, Newcastle, Inverness, London, Arlington Virginia, Kansas City Missouri), this is the trailer for these first cities.
The installation replaces two conventional street light heads with theatre spotlights pointing to the same single spot, creating an open invitation for the passers-by to perform, literally transforming the street into a stage.
This intentionally subtle alteration of street lighting suggests on one hand the latent potential of public realm as places of interaction and celebration and on the other offers an alternative approach to city’s lighting as more than securitarian.
The Lead commissioner for Limelight: Saturday night is Artisphere, Arlington new Cultural Center.
